Thanks to the rubber compound of the Vanco™ FourSeason 2, the tyre offers maximum wear resistance and a long service life. As a result, it provides outstanding economy throughout the year.
Thanks to the computer aided design and stiff tread pattern concept, the tyre provides perfect handling on dry roads.
The Vanco™ FourSeason 2 provides maximum grip on roads on wintry roads. Moreover, by dispersing water and slush, the tyre provides the best possible safety in winter, giving reliable traction and braking performance.
The German magazine, promobil, has published in the current issue (11/2016) their All-Season Tyre Test 2016.

Tyres with high wet grip performance (A or B graded) have shorter braking distances on wet roads and are, therefore, safer in the rain. As with fuel efficiency, the D grade isn’t used and there are no plans to use G.
Tyres account for up to 20% of your vehicle’s fuel consumption so, if you want to get more miles per tank of fuel, you should choose tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating. You will also lower your CO2 emissions. It comes down to rolling resistance i.e. the energy lost when a tyre is moving. The lower the rolling resistance, the less energy is lost and the lower your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The difference between an A-rated tyre and a G-rated tyre could be as much as 6 litres per 625 miles.
This is the external noise made by the tyre and is measured in decibels. The more filled bars shown on the label, the louder the tyres.
